Keiren Westwood

A vastly experienced goalkeeper in the English game, 37-year-old Westwood spent the final three months of last season with Championship play-off challengers Queens Park Rangers. Unfortunately for the Irishman he joined when the side were in a slump, sliding from automatic promotion hopefuls to top 10 finishers. One of the main causes for this was the goalkeeping injury-list, with the club going through five shot stoppers across the season. They won just once in Westwood’s six appearances, conceding nine in that time. Best known for his time in South Yorkshire, he was one of the best keepers in the Championship during his seven-year stint with Sheffield Wednesday- proving his undoubted quality.

Connor Ripley

Spending most of his career as a back-up, the 29-year-old’s best campaigns have come in the third tier. In nine years at Middlesbrough, he had eight loan deals to sides across the Football League and abroad, including playing every match for Oldham Athletic in the third tier and almost 30 games for Accrington Stanley. Since moving to Preston North End in 2018 he has played just 10 times and had a loan spell with Salford City in League Two on an emergency loan. Despite it being 10 years ago, he has pedigree with five international caps for England at youth level.

Lee Burge

Another third tier regular throughout his career, Burge played more than 150 times for Coventry City in 2012 until 2019 with all but one of the campaigns in League One. Joining Sunderland in 2019, he was a bit-part player in his debut season and last year. But he was an almost ever-present during the 2020/21 campaign, missing just five matches, taking his experience to 149 League One games.

Ben Hamer

A keeper who’s past lies mainly in the top two divisions, he has not played in the third tier for over a decade. Starting out at Reading, his most effective spell was with Charlton Athletic as he won League One and solidified in the Championship. Playing more than 20 times for clubs such as Leicester City, Nottingham Forest, and Derby County, he appeared 20 times for Swansea City last campaign. An experienced goalkeeper across all four levels, the 34-year-old would be a good pick-up for Wycombe Wanderers.
